A heads-up to any who may have missed it the first time round: expositionary was abandoned a (long) while back. I closed up shop for good today, locking all entries that weren't fic or meta. Feel free to defriend this journal now. If you'd like, re-friend at the new one: it's a combination of real-life & fic/fandom. Over and out. ♥

Happy New Year's, all. I'm back; apologies for being remiss in reading the flist. I blame illness, my education, and my personal journal (wanderlight) for the long absence from fandom.

I'm on winter break now, so hopefully I'll finally be able to finish various fics and post them. To begin with, fic from a fandom most of you haven't even heard of. ;)

--

title: This Is the Way the World Ends
rating: PG
characters: Lone Power, the Earth
words: ~500
summary: In my beginning is my end. A look at an apocalypse, of sorts, through the eyes of the Lone Power.

notes: This is not the story I set out to write, I'll admit. I claimed a prompt for the myriadwords challenge, long ago, and I still owe labellementeuse fic for that (!) — but instead, you get this snippet. I'm not quite sure what it is. Title and summary text stolen from T.S. Eliot.

In my beginning is my end.Collapse )

1 I am alive, contrary to popular belief; just incredibly busy with school and occupied with various other unimportant things. In fact, the only reason I actually finished a piece of writing is because I've been sick at home for most of the week with nothing to do (which is a little bit sad, in many ways, now that I reflect on it). So, ah, I bring you a repost of something I wrote for darkening_days, a comm you should all be watching if you aren't already.

title: Transitional
pairing: Gen
characters: Remus, Lily, werewolves.
rating: PG-13
words: 400
summary: There exist some things that no one wants to see.
notes: Written for the darkening_days prompt becoming. Crossposted. The idea is one that's been rattling around inside my mind since I started plotting this a long piece of Remus + werewolves genfic, and the prompt made me itch to write this snippet out.

but the blood is fresh, and there's been no decayCollapse )

1 School starts again for me on the fifth; I'm wasting the remainder of my summer by reading a lot of fic and writing a lot of horrible original fiction and fic. This week I'm doing a bit of volunteering -- the type you actually have to wake up early for -- so that should get me sorted on a regular sleep schedule again. Hopefully. Judging from the fact that it's midnight now, perhaps not.

2 The fic I'm currently writing is killing me. Thus, my rantings, as thinly-disguised meta! This is a bit all-over-the-place; it's about personal canon, it's about writing multiple takes on the same character/event, and it's also about reading them. Bear with my midnight-induced ramblings. ;)

fic: writing multiple, varying 'takes' on the same characters and eventsCollapse )

Aside: Um, I'm sorry I didn't get back to all responses on the last meta post. I was busy, but now, suitably contrite, I will try better this time. ;)

This one took me an age and a half to tweak to my satisfaction, and I'm afraid that it's more Regulus-reflects-on-Sirius than Remus/Sirius, but at least it's done now.

1 virginia_bell had the brilliant idea of holding a Christmas genfic exchange. ♥ If you're at all interested, pop over to her journal and say so; I'd love for something like this to happen.

2 If you're watching dogdaysofsummer -- and if you're an R/S shipper and not over at dogdays, shame on you! -- you'll have seen this pop up. But if not, I'm directing you thataway!

Six of us (closet_zebra, expositionary, last_radio, magnetic_pole, plumerri, and sazzlette) are writing a Remus/Sirius serial this month, tackling the period of time in which Sirius leaves Grimmauld Place.

I'm having altogether too much fun with this, alongside the stress of living up to much better writers than myself, so if you haven't taken a look already, we're posting everything at dogdays_runaway. ♥

1 I think I may actually start posting in this journal. :O Not so much real life stuff -- go to thelios for that -- but just general fandom-ish thoughts. I feel a bit strange, commenting and reading the f-list, and giving only radio silence in return.

2 Reading fic is interfering with my ability to write in the past tense. -- No, it really is; yesterday I was attempting to write my Regulus train!fic in past tense, just so that I wouldn't get out of practice, and I found myself shifting into the present every few sentences. (Why I'm writing Regulus fic when I have five Remus/Sirius stories in progress I have no idea, but that isn't the point.) Present tense simply seems more natural for me these days, but it's worrying; I'd still like to be able to write in the past, as it's the more generally-accepted tense for most published fiction. :( Which sort of brings me to the actual point of this post.

why are you in fandom?Collapse )

So, yes. Any thoughts you happen to have on this topic of writing & fandom, I'd be glad to hear. :)
